Colourful Thursday




Hi,
This evening I have been working again on my embroidery paintings.
It was dark when I took these pictures so I propped them up on the sewing machine.
It's amazing how many ideas come from one painting, I wish I had more time.
I sometimes work also in reverse and paint from my embroideries.
Is my mark making like I paint or is it like I sew?
It just flows from one to the other and evolves as I go.
I will add to etsy tomorrow.

Time, what's that?? I could do with some more too! Loving this work, I agree with your last post, silk is the most glorious thing to work with.

Lovely work and colours. It makes me want to go off to the south of France.

Like previous comments, I absolutely adored the colours and the actual 'flow' through the piece. Truly inspiring. Thank you.
Hugs, xx

Really beautiful. Are these all done by hand or any of it machine sewn? The colors shout out at me, and scream Fall is in the air.

I love the energy this piece has - I think it's got a lot to do with the direction your stitches flow in.Great colour too!

I just found your work and find it to be quite beautiful. I am always trying to find new ways to combine sewing and painting. You certainly have succeeded in marrying the two. I'll be following your work. It's very inspirational!
